Nick Cave supporting Australian Aboriginal Elders to create a suicide prevention app.

29th of April 2017, 17:20

Nick Cave has just expressed his support for the Warlpiri community of Lajamanu in the Australian Tanami desert, who are crowdfunding an indigenous suicide prevention app and added the campaign to his official website: http://www.nickcave.com/news/kurdiji-1-0-campaign/

"We’re losing three aboriginal people a week to suicide and an indigenous person is four times more likely to take their own life than a non-indigenous person. Most indigenous suicides are children between the ages of 10 and 14.

When a young man committed suicide in 2005, in the remote community of Lajamanu, local Warlpiri elders said ‘Enough is enough’. With help from friends, Lajamanu established Milpirri festival to spread the traditional ideas of ‘Kurdiji’ among their young people. They began to fight for every single young indigenous life in their community. Since 2005 there hasn't been a single suicide in Lajamanu.

Now those same elders want to bring Kurdiji into the digital age, with a community created app based on stories, ceremonies and law. They want to fight for all aboriginal lives, not just those in remote or traditional communities. The app will be called Kurdiji 1.0. This is a community-led and community empowering initiative, with indigenous elders providing all of the app’s content. They have partnered with an expert team to develop the app and roll it out across the whole of Aboriginal Australia."

Here you can see a short video about the project on You Tube.
You can also support the elders via our GoFundMe page: www.kurdijiproject.com or www.kurdijiproject.org

Aboriginal suicide rates are at the level of an epidemic and a genuinely community led technological approach hasn’t been tried before – so we’re in unknown territory to some degree. Your help, in spreading the word about our campaign, will make an enormous difference.
